for all tax deductions across the board. sure, steve. the upper end people would have a problem across the board. >> i like this idea a lot. i just heard about it an hour ago. but i have always believed as a supply sider that tax deductions and credits are termites in the tax code. if you can cap them, it is a sane thing to do and something that howard dean should like because it is progressive. >> steve, what i want to know, if you are in favor of limiting these kinds of deductions, then how about getting ready of the oil depletion allowance for oil companies? >> i think that is something that every manufacturer gets. that is anexpense. when you are talking about writing off a 2 million home i'm not in favor of that. >> do you realize this is the first time that we have ever agreed on anything? >> you know what, this is the right approach to go, larry. i think that mitt romney has opened up an avenue to pick up in the polls here. this plan is evolving into a flat tax. this one piece has legs to it. it has been out an hour. we can't really say. but what about the enormous cu s s in tax

couldn't. i looked at jim furyk and watching how many times he backed -- steve stricker towards the end, no, i didn't think about it. and even tiger. probably would have helped if he hit that little four footer so that it was 14-14 at least we wouldn't feel bad. >> yeah, that was quite gray issue gracious. that match probably deserved to be tied. >> and that putt at the end was weak. and he still had the smile on his face, the weird smile. but that was sad. anyway, anything else going on? there really isn't, is there? >> i will give and you quick recap because you were talking about the pmis a little bit earlier out of europe. markets are up. green on the board as you can see. advancers outpacing decliners by more than 8:2. dax up 12. cac up five. despite the fact those pmis came in weak, they were actually a slight tick up. even german ones. the french numbers were slightly weaker, too. spain not up quite so much. we heard from bank company popular, desperately trying it avoid having to take official popular, desperately trying it avoid having to take official aid. stock down 12
, and steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell will be our man in the spin room tonight. and the one and only chris matthews is at the university of denver, which is the site of tonight's debate. chris, i've been watching you this past hour. i can sense the excitement that you feel, that i feel as well. i mean, it is a big night when these candidates speak at their conventions, but tonight the tv audience for this debate could be almost twice the size as the convention audience. just a huge night. what are each of these guys thinking they need to do tonight? >> well, i think obama's the one i'm focused on, the president. because everybody's been talking about, it's romney's big chance, it's romney's opportunity, blah, blah, blah. suppose obama goes on the attack tonight. suppose he surprises everybody and doesn't play defense. he doesn't try to handle his opponent and clinch, that he really goes and tries to put him away. and i think that's the significanti i significanting question. how does romney deal with the fact that he has no spontaneity? no ability to deal with the unexpected? how does he d
but next on "power lunch," giving an exclusive to our steve liesman. lael brainard, u.s. undersecretary for international affairs, just ahead. mike rowe here at a ford tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. who has the low price tire guarantee... affording peace of mind to anyone who might be in the market for a new set of tires? your ford dealer. i'm beginning to sense a pattern. buy four select tires, get a $60 rebate. use the ford service credit credit card, get $60 more. that's up to $120. where did you get that sweater vest? your ford dealer. >>> too europe now, where there is fresh concern about spain and whether and when it might ask for bailout and if so how big it could be. our next guest is part of an exclusive club and knows probably more about the european crisis and how it's impacting our economy than just about anybody. so how exclusive is her access? look at this picture from the g-20 summit two years ago, lael brainard is the key u.s. representati
trail, on your tv screen. what is it really all about? steve pagliuca one of those that runs the firm joins me. >>> just when we need it most. what is it? i'll explain. >>> and, finally, candidate barack obama of brazil? but first here's my take. president obama has sewed up the -- surged in the polls this week, and republicans have been quick to figure out the problem. mitt romney. peggy noonan said his rolling campaign has been a calamity. shouldn't it puz puzzle us that romney's campaign is so incompetent, given his reputation for, well, competence. after all he founded one of the leading firms, turned around the salt lake city olympics and was a very successful governor. how did he get so clumsy so fast? in fact, the problem is not romney. but the new republican party, given the direction it has moved and pressures from the extreme, powerful elements, any nominee would face the same challenge. can you be a serious candidate for the general election while not outraging the republican base? fox news anchor brit hume refused to dwell on romney's economic policies he would put in plac
college votes. joining me now is steve and karen. karen, the expectation game has gotten really out of hand this time. finally chris christie, for whatever reason, just kind of gave up and stated the obvious and said well, of course. you know, mitt romney has to be the big winner on this first debate. >> well, i think he was like look, let me keep my credibility in check because he's been watching what has happened to congressman ryan over the course of this campaign. but i think each man has a different thing they need to accomplish. i think for governor romney he needs to have a strong performan performance. it's not just about one performance for him. his problem is a lack of consistency. he's got to have a good wednesday, thursday, friday, saturday. every day to the election. if you see him give one good performance and the next day they're off message, it's more of what we've seen the bumbling along throughout the campaign. and i think for president obama the challenge is, as my former boss howard dean said, don't get irritable. it's going to be hard when governor romney is goi
, where does he run after last night's sweeping win? let's talk. here now is democratic strategist steve mcmahon. and then cnbc contributor geoff jennifer rubin, author of the "washington post" right turn blog. jennifer was it a game changer for the whole presidential race? >> it potentially can be. what has to happen now romney has to build on that day after day. the difficulty they've had, this was true in the primary as well, they have a few good days and then they get off message or they fumble the ball a little bit. if they can string together one good day after another they only have to do it 33 more times they can get it done. >> growth, jennifer. growth, tax reform, lower the base, broaden the base, jobs. he had the kudlow script last night. >> he did. what is so telling is that the president is so thrown off balance he's insisting that romney has changed his plan because he wasn't giving the obama talking points. >> well now hold on. >> the democrats have mischaracterized romney's plans up the ying yang. so when he comes forward and tells what his plans are it's a shock. they th
. did you say first time ever? >> the first time ever they're 4-0. >> you mean not even under steve ba bartkowski? >> here's the thing. nobody's going to take them seriously until january. it's going to be so much pressure when the playoffs come around because they haven't delivered under matt ryan. and they could. they could run the table. >> just for the record, you say they haven't delivered in january under matt ryan. they haven't delivered in january since 1966. >> they went to the super bowl in 1998. >> dirty birds. >> and then got killed by the broncos, went out all night partying. >> in fairness. in fairness. >> no, we've had a very sad, sad playoff group, but they looked good. >> they looked very good. and character builder. they had the ball at their own 1. they drove down, got the winning field goal. >> is there a worse team in football than the dolphins? >> the browns. that's the thing. the raiders have gotten blown out a couple of times but they have a win over the steelers which no one can figure out. >> why can't the dolphins turn it around? it's been a rough, rough stre
moderate tone. steve, what do you think? is this historically the time during the campaign, the conventions are over, when the candidates both kind of come back to the center and stop flinging the red meat to try and talk right down the middle? >> there's a very important difference between how obama is approaching going after the middle in this campaign and how he did in his presidency and what romney is now doing. the story line from pundits and the press now is romney is moving to the middle. that's certainly the tone of what he did in the debate. that's the tone his rhetoric. it was centrist. the question is whether it's obama sounding like a centrist in the debate or romney sounding like a centrist in the debate. is it backed up by substance? on romney's side the answer is flatly now. if you look at the policies which he did not want to get into on wednesday night, they are not centrist in any way. we had in the clip saying pre-existing conditions are covered under the plan. of course you want to say that. that's a centrist-sounding thing. are they covered under romney's plan? no. he s
raised in housing. steve leisman and diana olick are all over the data points. steve, the latest jobs data, is it changing in any way the expectations for this friday's employment report? >> not a lot. economists would like to go from the adp data to higher estimates but it's not been that great over the past couple months. there's a lot of of caution out there among wall street economists. data this morning -- up 162,000 from the private sector. that's a bit better than expectations which were in the 150,000, 155,000 range. in august it was revised down to 189,000. the non-farm payroll estimates. we won't know until friday if that is higher. here's the misses we've had over the past three months. it's been 63,000 heavy compared to the bls private sector report. you can see over the course of the year it's been a little bit on the high side making economists wary about upping their estimates. what has been a little bit on the up side is jobless claims. other data that helped buoy optimism, slightly higher than claims in last month's survey week. the ism jobs manufacturing is at a thre
're going to stop thinking about firing tim cook. i love that. steve jobs would fire tim cook. he would fire everyone involved in maps and he would berate them in front of everyone. he was not a nice man and yet everyone loved him anyway. >> lifelock posted a little below the range. maybe a little disappointment there. i might be able to see that. certainly one that we're going to watch, a big week for ipos, of course, one of the busiest. berry plastics tomorrow and pretty sizeable deals. >> and one of the things that we need to see is some pulse down here. there was a lot of social media, people got gaffed. any time you see new companies, you think, maybe i should stop shorting goldman sachs and maybe there is a sign of capital formation. p excellent show stopper yesterday. and mark cuban was so great and the destruction of the capital markets. cuban, cooperman, these guys are not idle thinkers. they are the best we have. and high frequency trading has destroyed a lot. >> and suggesting you tax intraday trades 50%, trades less than a minute, 100%, that would cut down on it in a hurry. >> no
. >> oh, yeah, find a date. >> escorts. >> anyway, when we come back, steve liesman will join our political conversation. we have an economic fact check of last night's debate. >> who wants to be a millionaire! driver, multi-car, paid in full -- a most fulsome bounty indeed, lord jamie. thou cometh and we thy saveth! what are you doing? we doth offer so many discounts, we have some to spare. oh, you have any of those homeowners discounts? here we go. thank you. he took my shield, my lady. these are troubling times in the kingdom. more discounts than we knoweth what to do with. now that's progressive.

was speaking more. then you could by any other individual plays. let me bring in steve schmidt who is a senior strategist. what's your overall assessment? >> i think it was a great night for mitt romney. i think the doom and gloom that's been hanging over the romney campaign, republicans in general has lifted tonight. i think that the democratic advance which began literally a month ago when clint eastwood walked out on stage ended tonight. i think the race is going to tighten. i think mitt romney was in command of this from the beginning. i'm not sure that he lost an exchange during the entire debate. a startling performance in my view and just the context of how good mitt romney was tonight. >> i thought that in terms of individual exchanges i think what may have been most notable, there wasn't i think a single direct attack against mitt romney from president obama. however, they substantively dealt with policy matters. >> he was looking down tonight. he was passive. he was abstract in his answers. mitt romney was talking about real people, giving real examples. i thought he was clear. he wa
conversation it can take a little while. >> steve, we've got time. >> you know, yeah, joe biden is going to step back and go take your time. go ahead, you know, we can listen. >> yeah, there is this famous s and l sketch from the 1988 election. and he said you got 1:30 and talk about what you do for the homeless problem. he says i don't have enough time there is so much to get to. you know what, we have stopped the clock for you. and he stairs. you wonder, the thing was, in the debate last night. obama had multiple opportunities to press romney and be specific on the math and present the math to people to make them understand. he missed the opening and i think crystal is right. when you look at how joe biden has conducted himself in the past. one of the big reasons he is on the ticket in the first place is how well he performed in the last debates. he made a strong impress on democrats and the obama campaign. if you go way back in history for joe biden that campaign ended. but in the early going in the spring and summer that year, he had a reputation for being a powerful performer for pe

"the journal" points out, there's no place to try out the new tablet. are you going to buy a tablet just on blind faith without trying it out? >> tiff beta. it's quite exciting. but excitement doesn't necessarily equal sales. there was a downgrade of nokia saying the windows 8 operating system, not good for phones. intel seems to have lost its way with that 4% yield being the only reason to be in it. the desktop -- i feel very triceratops here with this. >> how about the story in "the times" over the weekend about meg whitman? >> they still make a lot of them. but the question is, is it really a business you want to be in? >> do you remember scm? >> yes. >> smith corona mar chant. they were making electric typewriters like they were going out of style. >> that "times" story, not a lot that we didn't already know in terms of what h
